What a great site.I, too, am supposed to be decended from Urbain Tessier.But need to verify my way up the tree.Am still working on more recent ancestors. My grandmother was Blanche Virginia Tessier, b. 8 Aug 1905 in Argyle, Marshall Co., MN, d. 17 Feb 1965 in Tacoma, Pierce Co., WA. Married 17 Jul 1926 to Reginald Gustave Roberts in Tacoma, Wa. Blanche's parents were: Dosithe Tessier b. 8 Aug 1859 in Montreal, Quebec (not proven), d. 2 Apr 1934 in Tacoma, WA. Married 21 May 1882 in Argyle, MN to Delvina Laramie b. 1 Sep 1866, d. 19 Apr 1939 in Tacoma, Wa. Daughter of Pierre (Peter)Laramie (LaRamee) and Rosalie Babeau (Babbey/Babby/Babay). Other children of Dosithe and Delvina were: Joseph Albert Tessier, m. Purssima Sauve, Mary Rose Delvina Tessier, m. Edward Rinkenberger, Olive Tessier, d. young, Arthur Tessier d. young, Mable Dorothy Tessier, m. 1) Alfred Collins, 2) Frank Cooney & Leonas (Leo) Tessier, m. Jane Sauve. Dosithe's parents (as shown on his death certificate) are Charles Tessier b. Circa 1808/1820 in Montreal, d. circa 1903 in Montreal.Married 9 Feb 1841 in Beauharnois, Canada to Catherine Boyer, b. Circa 1823/1867. Daughter of Nicolas Boyer and Genevieve Dumouchel.Other children of Charles and Catherine: Angelique (a nun - Sister Marie du Bon Pasteur), Catherine (school teacher - unmarried), Marcelene m. 1) Louis Hebert 2) Bonaventure Vinette, Charles m. Hariett Beauchemin, Matilde m. Delia Lebarge, Moise (Moyse) m. Alphonsine Bonhomme, Albert m. Marie-Sophie Baillargeon, Ophir (Friar), Arsene (Sam) unmarried, .
All the info I have after that is just speculation and information off the internet.But I'm having trouble really connecting Charles to the proper line. Would love to find more info in regards Charles and Catherine and all their children.
Am also looking for the Laramie line (LaRamee). Thank you.
